This picture I took in Yoho National Park. The views were just amazing, mountains everywere you looked. I don't know if these mountains have names (maybe anyone else knows, if so just let me know......).
But it was just worth to stop our RV and enjoy this view.

Here's some info I found on Yoho:

Yoho National Park is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains along the western slope of the Continental Divide in southeastern British Columbia. Yoho NP is bordered by Kootenay National Park on the southern side and Banff National Park on the eastern side. The name Yoho comes from a Cree word expressing amazement.

Yoho covers 1,313 km² (507 mi²) and is the smallest of the four contiguous national parks (NP). Yoho, together with Jasper NP, Kootenay NP and Banff NP, along with three British Columbia provincial parks—Hamber Provincial Park, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, and Mount Robson Provincial Park—form the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site.

This park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, together with the other national and provincial parks that form the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, for the mountain landscapes containing mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves as well as fossils found here.

Hola Nel,
Paisaje precioso, me gustan mucho las montañas, y el equilibrio cromático. La carretera molesta un poco, ya que es un elemento extraño, bueno un saludo y hasta pronto.

Preciosa panorámica. Bellos colores en las montañas y el cielo.
Me gusta la escena, quizá desde otro PoV hubieses evitado la carretera, pero de cualquier manera el paisaje, la luz y la nitidez que lo envuelven son fantásticas.
Saludos, JL.

Hi Nel,
A beautiful landscape scene. Excellent exposure with the great colors and sharp detail. I love the clouds, and A great sense of depth to this scene. A nice one!

Hello Nel,
I'm always impressed by this mountain formations... so majestic and geologically unlike what we have here!
Good point of view, I was uncertain about inclusion of the road for a while but I think it adds to the reality of the situation...
Well composed and with good details!

Hoi Nel,
Prachtige foto, met erg goed detail in de machtige bergen. De weg is niet een mooi stuk in deze foto, maar ik weet dat je soms niet anders kan. Ik stoor mij dus ook niet aan de weg. Kleuren en belichting zijn erg goed.

Hoi Nel,

Prachtige foto van deze mooie berg. Mijn vriendin en ik zijn vorig jaar met een RV door British Columbia en Alberta getoured en vonden het geweldig! Ik zal met veel plezier jouw fotos van deze streek bekijken. De kleuren van deze foto zijn heel mooi.
